This is wonderful!

Actor Mark Wahlberg and his wife Rhea have been very public about their Catholic faith, posting Ash Wednesday greetings and calling for more priestly vocations. A few weeks ago, they shared pictures of their daughter Grace having her first Reconciliation, and earlier today they celebrated her first Communion!

Here are the Instagram posts:

The first caption reads, “1st communion day ⛪✝,” and the second one says, “Special day…….✝💜.”

Rhea previously shared pictures on Instagram related to Grace’s first Reconciliation, which she did a few weeks ago:

Mark Wahlberg was raised Catholic and has been public about his Catholic faith in recent years. His wife, Rhea Durham, is a successful model and converted to Catholicism in 2009 just before their wedding. Together they have four children. Nonetheless, Wahlberg has been criticized for starring in the recent raunchy comedy film series Ted and appearing to support same-sex marriage (which is contrary to Catholic teaching).

Say a prayer for their daughter Grace that she grows in her Catholic faith!
